“Interest rates are not the conversation we need to be having... Why is the PRINCIPLE so high?

Who cares if the rate is 3.4% or 6.8% when the principle is $20k instead of the all too common $100k+?”

“Seth was funny. He took digs at anyone and everyone. Get over it.”

Randyman5 on Feb 25, 2013 at 14:09:17

“Hey Joe, please tell us which jokes were about people like you.... you know, since he "took digs at anyone and everyone"..... which jokes were ethnically, religiously, orientationally, against people like you. Huh Joe?

Anyone who cannot see that McFarlane is a woman hater is blind!

I really wonder what this guys sexual orientation is... clearly he is not gay as he is
absolutely obsessed with women.... I've known straight woman-haters before, and I do
think he's a woman hater. His exact "turn-ons" are hard to get a fix on... but my guess
is that he likes them QUITE young. . . illegally young. How young, I can't quite get a
fix on.... that's my guess on him. I just get such a STRONG vibe from McFarlane that
he has some really whacked out sexual fetishes.... just can't really put my finger
on it, though.”

“Let's not forget...

Avengers = Super Heroes (Fantasy)

Make that argument about G.I. Joes (as it has been made for the past 20 years), whom are supposed to be regular soldiers. Not genetic anomalies, radioactive mistakes, or Norse Gods.”

Mom of 5 on Oct 26, 2012 at 11:01:37

“Playboy bunnies = airbrushed (fantasy)

G I Joe's have huge muscles. So do most action figures real and plastic. People like "The Rock" are not little. I think the most normal looking action figure in our house is Indiana Jones.
I just thought my husband had a good point about both genders needing help to understand and gain a healthy body image.”

“That's fine. However, it does not change the fact that a student ID card does not have the individual's address printed on it... whereas a gun license does.

I'm really not sure what you're missing at this point?”

“I understand that colleges, public and private, are more qualified to verify addresses than gun shops.

However, going back to my original point... student ID's don't have the individual's permanent address (ie, the address they are voting from) on them. Gun licenses have permanent addresses on them, thus verifying address.”

larmarch5 on Aug 13, 2012 at 19:20:47

“And I think the COLLEGE IS their permanent address depending on the state's residency laws. Some states require a year, some less.”

“I am a registered Democrat, and I agree with you... however, let's note that gun licenses are state-issued, versus school-issued. (Private schools being the question, as a public school is technically run by the state).

“I know the point you're trying to make, but I think this may have to do with having your permanent address on the gun license and not the student ID.”

larmarch5 on Aug 13, 2012 at 17:56:53

“I think students who are at a college 9-12 months out of the year do have a permanent address. And colleges are as qualified to verify an address as a gun shop employee is.”
